Call for works 2013

Call for dance performances

Aerowaves is a network which annually researches younger dance work in
Europe, and seeks cross-border presentation opportunities for selected
artists. In 2009 over 70 performances were confirmed in 22 European
cities. This increased to over 80 in 2010, and  approximately 100
opportunities in 2011. We anticipate a similar number in 2012, listed on
the Aerowaves Companies calendar at www.aerowaves.org as they occur. This
application is for 2013, when we aim to offer as many opportunities, and
possibly more.

How to apply

Upload your video at www.vimeo.com.

Complete the online Aerowaves application form.

When your uploaded work has been agreed as eligible by email, post an
identical DVD of the piece you wish to present (with your company name,
email address and the title of the work clearly marked) to the postal
address below.

Only one work may be submitted by each choreographer or company.

Applications must be completed by Monday 17 September 2012

The video should be a simple record of a public performance from beginning
to end, if possible including close-up and wide shots as appropriate.
Promotional videos are not acceptable, and neither are videos of any piece
other than that which you want to perform. Please do not submit videos
longer than 40 minutes or less than 15 minutes since they will not be
considered. If you are applying with a shortened version of a longer work,
it must be edited to the short version on the video. DVDs must play on a
standard DVD player. Those that will only play on a computer will not be

Selection Process

Receipt of your application and DVD will be acknowledged by email. The
email is not automated, therefore, it may take a day to reach you.

You should enter any performances of the proposed work in the Aerowaves
Candidates calendar at www.aerowaves.org.

Priority Companies will be established by a meeting of Aerowaves Partners
which takes place at the end of October, followed by the selection of
companies for the Aerowaves Spring Forward Festival (3-5 May 2013 ).
Companies will be offered a small fee, agreed travel expenses, shared
hotel accommodation for three or four nights (dependent upon performance
date) and expenses for each company member. Detailed arrangements will be
confirmed by contract following selection.

Priority Companies may also receive performance invitations throughout
Europe in 2013, the conditions to be agreed between the artists and the
presenters. All subsequent performances of the selected works, whether by
Aerowaves invitation or not, should be entered in the Aerowaves Companies
calendar at www.aerowaves.org.

Other applicants may also receive performance invitations even if they are
not included within the Priority Companies. We are sorry that we cannot
enter into further correspondence with those who are not selected.

Criteria for selection

Some of the qualities that have guided us in the last 15 years:

- The work is propelled by a good idea
- Choreographed with an originality motivated by this idea
- Which has the confidence to omit the superfluous
- With a clear and sturdy structure
- Danced with clarity, verve, commitment and assurance
- That will look good presented under limited technical conditions
- From a company that has not toured much abroad
- But whose experience might be enriched through Aerowaves
- And that will have a future
